A variant first printing of this rare World War I-vintage stapled paper pamphlet containing, “Speeches delivered at the Guildhall, London, on September 4th, 1914, by Mr. Asquith, Mr. Bonar Law, Mr. Balfour and Mr. Churchill”—the then-current Prime Minister, one past-PM and two future Prime Ministers..
Though Cohen in his bibliography notes two printings: the first of 50,000 copies in October 1914 (recorded with the parliamentary warrant line: 10/14), the second of 100,000 copies in November 1914 (11/14); this copy is dated 9/14 and must supersede both.
A true rarity, with a fold mark through the center and some fraying to the stapled binding edge but otherwise in very good condition.
